Shadow Justice Secretary David Lammy joined us for our online event ‘The Lammy Review – three years on’ on Tuesday 8th September.

The day marked the third anniversary of The Lammy Review: An independent review into the treatment of, and outcomes for, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic individuals in the Criminal Justice System.

The report conducted extensive research across all areas of criminal justice, with the ultimate aim of reducing disproportionality in the criminal justice system.

Three years on, there has been too little progress on the report’s 35 recommendations to develop trust, fairness and responsibility, and disproportionality is still endemic.

David Lammy was in conversation with former PET trustee and Chair of the Violent Crime Prevention Board, Dr Angela Herbert MBE.

Dr Herbert was then joined by an expert panel to consider the links between disadvantage and discrimination in education and in criminal justice, followed by a Q&A:
  • Dr Karen Graham, Senior Lecturer in Faculty of Education, Manchester Metropolitan University
  • Dr Anthony Gunter, Programme Lead for Childhood and Youth Studies at the Open University
  • Raheel Mohammed, Director and Founder of Maslaha
